I saw an angel – A poor man seeks help from God in vain. He knows he should respect the Ten Commandments but he’s too hungry and can’t resist the temptation to steal a loaf of fresh bread that a woman is carrying in a basket in the street. For this theft, he’ll be punished by a group of men and by the police, who will leave him half dead on the street. Once at hospital, the doctor will refuse to take care of him because he doesn’t have health insurance. But eventually, the poor man will meet a woman who’ll be gentle with him.
